A Bob's Razor Works handle came today, with a Gillette New LC head.  The handle is shorter and lighter (69mm/23g) than I expected, but I'm looking forward to trying it.

Matador Precision. I never intended to start collecting these things, but as this is my fourth Matador, I suppose I am.

Three more shaving soaps with orange fragrance arrived today, Eleven Organic Sweet Orange, Stirling Orange Chill, and TFS Bergamotto Neroli.  I'll try them in the next week or so.

Altough I don't like it that much, my girlfriend really love the bergamotto neroli. So much so that she bought her self the balm.

By the way the bergamotto neroli from TFS and Don Marco from Razorock smell exactly the same thing!

Please tell me your tought on the Eleven and Stirling one when you'll try it.

Very nice Clint.  Beautiful handle.  You were lucky to get one, because only a few were available and they sold out quickly.

Thank you.  I was very lucky and snagged the last one.  I was trying to decide between the 3 choices and was drawn to the Olive Wood.  I think the brush looks much better in person than pictures.

I've waited a long time for a 2XL, in antique ivory, with a bulb shaped knot I liked.  My cell phone photos do not show the beautiful color and grain of this resin.  Well done Brad!

Awesome brush friend, what is the loft? 54mm maybe?

Thank you.  It's a 28mm knot with a stated loft of 56mm.  My calipers show the knot is 30mm at the top of the handle, and the loft is 53-54mm.
